There's an underwear bandit on the loose in Kodiak, and Alaska State Troopers are reminding residents to lock their doors.
In the past week, troopers have received a string of reports of burglaries, criminal trespassing and theft, according to a trooper dispatch. Residents say they have returned home to find someone had rifled through or stolen various items. In some cases, the thief took women's underwear, the report said.
Troopers said they believe the cases are connected. While investigating the reports, troopers heard that other Kodiak residents had experienced similar crimes in recent months but did not call law enforcement, the dispatch said.
